Miss Mustard Seed’s Typewriter Milk Paint

I have purchased three of MMS’s milk paints and twice I have been disappointed – only because it didn’t chip on its own.  I adore the colors and how it goes on my pieces and how beautifully it distresses with sandpaper and how gorgeous the pieces are with a little wax – but they didn’t chip…..

Finally – I didn’t over sand and the paint chipped and crackled – hurray!!! (Outside in the bright sun-sorry for the shadowy pictures)


oh – a little chippiness!


and more!


A lot more and some peeling too – yay!


The finished piece with some really dark wax on it to make it look more black!

Don’t be intimidated when the pieces don’t chip on their own – distress like you always have.  But when they do their own thing – pure bliss!
